Grants from the HCC Foundation

HCC Foundation encourages faculty and staff to implement new programs and find creative ways to enhance students’ learning experience at HCC by providing funding for materials, projects, and services. Grants of up to $15,000 are available to invest in the efforts of HCC faculty to develop innovative programs that will provide high-quality educational experiences for many students and foster student success.

HCC Foundation Policies and Guidelines are provided to help applicants understand the HCC Foundation’s background, grant making priorities and processes, thereby improving the likelihood of approval for some and saving valuable time for others whose application is not aligned with the HCC Foundation’s strategic focus and priorities.

Download the HCC Foundation Grant Application form found below to receive complete instructions and details regarding HCCF grant award policies and guildlines.
